There is potential for a NBA lockout next year and Nate Robinson has a Plan B in mind that dates back to his college days at UW, according to Mike Tokito of The Oregonian.â†µ
Celtics guard Nate Robinson briefly played football at Washington — he was a defensive back — and he tells the Boston Globe’s Julian Benbow he might consider trying out for an NFL team if the NBA shuts down.â†µ
“If we have a lockout, you might see a lot of guys, including myself, try out and see where it takes you, just see if you can do it or not,” Robinson says. “You never know what can happen.”â†µ
Of course, the NFL also has labor issues and might not be playing.â†µ
So after pondering whether he’d make it, how about a second question based on Tokito’s article: would he still be playing football today if he was a running back?
